ORP CARE Alkaline/ORP Fillter (AP-ORP10) User Guide
Does YOUR existing (or NEW) "Undersink" Filter system look like these?
Thank you for your purchase of ORP Care filter products. We recommend hiring a licensed plumber or experienced "handyman" if you have no plumbing experience and/or the tools needed. Be sure to read all the information on the cartridge label regarding WATER PRESSURE, Temperature and Expected life and capacity.
If you are installing a NEW "undersink" R/O system (example: "iSpring" Brand) refer to instructions that should be included with that product. NOTE: We do not make or sell complete home units as such, there are several brands and models on Amazon and other retailers. If you cannot locate printed instructions, check the Manufacturer's Web Site by referring to the EXACT Brand name and model # identified on the product.
The ORP Care Alkaline/ORP water filter cartridge (Part AP-ORP10) INCLUDES Two (2) "John Guest" (JG brand) elbow fittings needed to connect the INLET and OUTLET water TUBING that connects to the R/O unit and your faucet. They are packed inside each of the END CAPS which need to be removed before installation. If you have never worked with JG fittings before, watch the YOU TUBE videos mentioned later on this page. They will explain and SHOW in detail the cutting tool to prepare tubing ends and securely lock the tubing in to place.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to TURN OFF AND DRAIN the water supply to the R/O system BEFORE you disconnect any existing tubing or remove an old Alkaline/ORP filter that you may be replacing.
CAREFULLY attach one end of each fitting to EACH END of the filter cartridge. Mount the Filter into it's designated location on the R/O unit or make or obtain a seperate bracket if needed. NOTE: The "FLOW" arrow on the cartridge Label. The OUTPUT is at the end pointed to by the Arrowhead.
Turn the water supply back on and check the undersink area carefully for LEAKS from the fittings, several times during next several hours or so. It may take some time for a SMALL leak to be detected, so recheck often. The J/G fittings are usually very relaible and you should have little or no concern for leaks if you don't find any within the first day.
We reccomend you run and DRAIN about 5 gallons or so of the FIRST water that passess through the filter before drinking or cooking with the water. You can also use a simple pH test strip and/or ORP meter, if available to confirm mineral content is within expected limits.
